A+I is seeking a creative and engaged person to join a team interested in exploring the overlap between architectural design and strategic thinking. The architectural strategist will help design the ideas and arguments that inform the architectural design and planning process. 

Our ideal candidate has a professional degree in architecture or a related field and 5 years of hands-on professional architectural experience in a design-focused office.  A background in statistics, social or environmental research, or scientific research work is desirable, but not required.  This work entails assisting the Director of Strategy in both quantitative and qualitative research processes including conducting interviews, designing surveys, observing workplaces, and conducting workshops.  The strategist will assist in the analysis of gathered information, and representing both data and analysis graphically. He or she will also work closely with architectural teams in designing strategies and generating narratives to guide the architectural work.

The position requires strong client-engagement skills, strong analytical skills, strong graphic design and presentation skills, and the ability to think creatively both independently and within teams.  As the gathering and presentation of data require that strategists be comfortable in front of clients, representing the ideas of a team, candidates must be able to communicate complex ideas with clarity: visually, verbally, and in writing.

 Candidates should have demonstrated skill in the following:

  • Adobe Creative Suite (Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop)
  • AutoCAD / Revit
  • Sketchup / Rhino or similar 3dModeling platform
  • Microsoft Excel

Candidates should come prepared to discuss specific relevant experiences and show and discuss their architectural work, graphic work, and work centered on the generation and presentation of conceptual ideas.
